Houghton PR’s in Belgium
July 14th, 2007 by Henry

Kristopher Houghton ran a PR 3:50.96 in Kortrijk, Belgium in his first race of the European track season this year. I his own words, “I raced well considering all the travel the last two days. I ran 3:50.96 (A Personal Best!) and felt easy. There were a LOT of people in the field, as they combined the A & B heats. I got out pretty slow, as I was in the second row on the start line. I was near the end of the 2nd pack and had to use the whole race to pass that pack and start working on the 1st pack, but the finish line came too soon. I’m pretty sure I negative splited the race, but I didn’t have a watch on it. I was 14th, just 2 behind Dmitry Safronov, who has been running really well this season. He ran 13:48 a couple weeks ago, so I am confident about my chances of running low 13:50’s. I race a big 3,000m on Sunday and will let all of you know how that goes.”
